Description:

The E.U. Combines some attributes of a state with those of an international organization, yet it resembles neither. Its development is shaped by an increasing number of players, including twenty-five member governments, multiple common E.U. institutions, clusters of experts, private interests, and citizen groups. All influence what the E.U. is and what it does. Duncan Watts demystifes the E.U. and makes its institutions and processes more intelligible to all who share an interest in the function of the organization. He covers key aspects in an authoritative yet clear and accessible style and provides valuable maps, tables, a glossary of terms, and suggestions for further reading.
